Since we are in a holiday mood here on my blog (where is the Christmas music??) I figured I would post another holiday themed card (and there is much more where that came from!).

I love your stitching and gift box! You are so clever and talented — I would feel so privileged to win it! One of the things I do each year is to put a new ornament on the Christmas tree for each of my grandchildren with their picture in it. I have 5 grandchildren and have been doing it for 5 years now and have quite a collection of pictures of them growing up.


Val contact me with your address so I can mail you the ornament!! Congratulations!!

Now for the card. This set is by MFT and is called Merry Christmas.

It is going LIVE tonight!

OK now I really have the card to share –

wake-me-mft.jpg Wake me

I found some really pretty double sided paper for this card by Imaginesce. Did a little paper piecing to tie in my color scheme. I love how this turned out. Sweet blush, rose red, and various tones of green.

The strip of patterned paper in the back is suppose to be like a unrolled piece of wrapping paper. I used my bridal confetti flowers to color a poinsettia 😀 A felt flower by American Crafts makes up my leaf.

This is usually ME! EXHAUSTED from all the pre-holiday bustle. Especially since I try to make most of our gifts. Its a good exhaustion, don’t get me wrong. I do the day after Thanksgiving holiday dash to the stores at 5 am and shop till the after noon. Then the WORST part-wrapping! BLECH! I dislike that part-a lot. I try and make Jay do it all since he is a wrapping PRO, and I did all the shopping. Every year we say we will not over do it, and some how, some way, we do.

We have to make sure each kid has the SAME exact # of gifts. They sit an count them! I cannot believe it. Then I remember being a kid, and doing the same. Isn’t that funny? They don’t care what is inside, as long as its even.

We have them take turns opening, or do the 1-2-3 OPEN. Its so funny.

My brother and I would get up at like 4 am on Christmas morning, and freak out with excitement, till 6 am, if we made it that long, then we would then wake up our parents. Part of why I always wanted more than ONE child was remembering I had someone to share that with. I didn’t think it would be fun to sit there alone. I had some of the best Christmas memories as a child.

 Robbie (my brother) ALWAYS got stuck waking them up. I didn’t want to get into trouble so I would always find a way to bribe him into it. Then we would have to wait for my mom to get her coffee. UGH! It was a killer watching the entire pot brew! Now that is ME! I need my coffee before anything else.

What is funny to me is because we get in very late on Christmas Eve (usually 1-2 am) the kids sleep really late. Jay and I are sitting by the tree waiting for the KIDS to get up, and we contemplate awaking them because we are so excited. Seeing their little faces light up is what I love. Just amazing to me. The wonder and joy. I love when they go to the empty plate that Santa left behind. They are just amazed. We got lots of questions last year about HOW Santa gets in without a chimney. We told them he has a magic key. Noah was like “I hope he doesn’t come to our house and steel things” THAT cracked me up. Lots of questions……………

Last year Santa and Mrs. Claus came to our house, and even had each childs special gift! That otta get them believing for another couple of years. He looked SO real I almost believed 😀

I will miss these days for sure. This is the best time of year when you have little ones.

Well thanks for letting me reflect. I could just go on and on about the many things I take in during the holidays. I love that time of year.

Well I hope to see you tonight!!
